Terms & Policies
I know that children can seem to like to try many different activities, and sometimes seem to change their mind about them quickly. I recognise that paying upfront can be an expensive exercise if they decide it’s not for them…I have 2 girls myself!
However, in most new situations I find that there is a settling period, with children needing time to get used to the new environment, people and activity. This is natural, and can last anywhere from 5-10 minutes, to 1-2 sessions.
This is why your child’s first Platypus Kids session will always be FREE!
Thereafter, if you decide to pay for half-term bookings in one payment you will receive a discount each half term equating to another free week.
If you pay for a whole term in one payment, you will receive the equivalent discounts combined, PLUS AN EXTRA %10 DISCOUNT.
As I keep the space for your child whether they are attend or not, I cannot refund you for any missed classes.
There are several key forms that you need to have completed before your child’s first session. Please arrive early for your first session to enable enough time to complete these. You can see what I’ll be asking you to sign here so that you are prepared in advance…
Liability Waiver Agreement
This waiver is not a substitute for liability insurance coverage
I _________________________________(print name) understand that yoga includes physical movements as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress re-education and relief of muscular tension. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions. I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether I or my child are fit to practice yoga. I also understand that supportive and encouraging touch, massage, and partner and group interaction is an integral part of this class.
I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I and/or my child/children, now or hereafter, may have against (Nathan White, Platypus Kids).
